Reality Show Makes Contestants Eat Their Pets Or Go Vegetarian

A controversial new television show in the United Kingdom asks, “What happens when your dinner becomes your pet?” It’s called Meat The Family.

The show asks families to spend a few weeks living with and raising animals that frequently appear on their dinner plates. The first few episodes include a pig, a calf, chickens, and a lamb.

The families must treat each animal like they would any pet. They also learn about the emotional intelligence of the species or breed they are looking after.

Afterwards, each family faces a difficult decision: either give up eating meat for good or they must cook and eat their new pet.
